How the panels of pressed glass were formed. Hand pressed were typically thicker, resulting in a deeper thumbprint. Machine was thinner, as too thick and machines couldn't release.
How glass is stained. Normally this is a painted on substance that once refired causes a lasting colored stain. Metalic colors are slightly different and were always hand-painted.

As staining can be done at any time against the glass, variants are possible. Our standard colors reflect only those known to have been applyed by the manufacturer.


Notes
This is a massive piece, shown in one picture with the Orange Bowl overlay, and another with the largest Open Flared Bowl. This has more in common with the Orange Bowl (in stem and scalloped rim), but shares the general bowl design with the Open Flared Bowl. This may have been a custom piece, or a prototype.
